      (Rake: $0.11)

      Ok so pre-flop I've isolated the dead money and get raised from SB. At this point i put him on a range like TT+ AQs+ since he's 3betting quite a lot maybe even some weaker hands, so I call in position. Now on the flop comes an Ace and he bets quite small. Here I shrink his range to something like TT,JJ,QQ,KK thinking that he's betting small in order to keep the pot small with a non top pair so I call again on the flop for value and to let him bet the turn as a bluff again. On the turn comes a 9 which shouldn't hit his hange unless he 3bet me with 99 or 44 at that spot and I considered that to be highly unlikely. This time he bets a little bigger than half the pot and I'm thinking that I will have the best hand here versus his range a lot of the time and since i will only have 0.9$ left and the pot will be 2.34$ I decided to shove here for value vs KK QQ JJ and maby AJ. What do you guy think about my play here?

      Hello rap1dw1n3r,

      Preflop: You wont play the hand profitable here, you should definitely fold straight away. You don't even that much of reads on the opponent and the sample size isn't the best.

      As played
      Postflop: Of course if you Call here we can't really do much than go broke. But as I said the early step what should be done before calling is to fold it preflop.

      Best Regards.
